ALMENARA DE ADAJA
In the vicinity are the remains of a large Roman villa,
now in course of excavation, with cubicula built about
a rectangular enclosure. Of the 1500 m thus far uncovered, 400 were adorned with mosaics, implying a luxurious dwelling based on important agricultural activity.
The mosaics are geometric and floral, and no furnishings
have survived. The villa was abandoned before the 5th c.
